Polycom Limited Warranty and Limitation Liability

LIMITED WARRANTY. Polycom warrants to the end user (“Customer”) that this product is expected to be free from defects in workmanship and materials, under normal use and service, for one year from the date of purchase from Polycom or its authorized reseller.

Polycom’s sole obligation under this express warranty is at Polycom’s option and expense, to repair the defective product or part, deliver to Customer an equivalent product or part to replace the defective item, or if neither of the two foregoing options are reasonably available, Polycom may, on its sole discretion, refund to Customer the purchase price paid for the defective product. All products that are replaced will become the property of Polycom. Replacement products or parts may be new or reconditioned.
